Summary of MD07.refstack.20130102

(back to MediumDeepFields summary)

Similar to the MD07.GR0 (MD.GR0#MD07.GR0) refstacks for the 2011/2012 season, these include recent improvement and input cuts to help constrain the convolved stacks as well. Because the refstack is made with reprocessed pixels, the refstack pixels will now have the ubercalibration. Overall fewer inputs to the refstack were done this round and may not be as deep as last season.

MD07 observations:

  • starting end January 2013?
  • mid-January 2012 through end June 2012
  • early February 2011 through mid-July 2011

MD07.V3 Processing (chip->warp + refstack)

Exposure reprocessing was done for only a limited number (~150) of the best images from 2010-2011 to provide a balance of N input warps versus best seeing, excluding exposures with large background, low zeropoints and large elongation.

Processing chip-warp and the refstack itself has the same label, data_group

  • label: MD07.refstack.20130102 --> once set as active refstack for diffims, stack label will change to MD07.refstack, chip/cam/warp label will remain the same
  • data_group: MD07.refstack.20130102

New ipp-20121218 tag used.

Test stack (reftest) sample also made again for skycell.055 with different number of input warps.

As before, the FWHM_MAJOR with the central skycell can be variable and more so with largely different input sets. Comparison with the psf_major/minor maps are more useful between refstack versions.

Problems

  • generally edge skycells have issues, need better containment of those still. (see core coverage below). g,r has additionally ratty edge skycells.
  • like others, greater % of inputs rejected (20-30%) so per pixel input is less, but still of order 30 inputs per pixel
  • some convolved stacks have poorer FWHM PSF but not significant enough to be likely improved by reprocessing using DEEP_STACK config as in earlier MD fields (ie s083r, and a bit s011i, s017g)
  • as this is a field with a large center offset, the center is more contained in skycell.044 and has the degraded FWHM in gri
  • skycell details:
    • y: s032,042,052,062,063,083 cell print through problem (from ota14, cell 31); s034 bright junk; s044 center/dither spot; s003,004,040 cell odd/bright chunks on edge
    • z: s005,006,040 undersampled, messy edge; s034,062 bright junk
    • i: s006,040 undersampled, messy edge; s015,034,062 (057 less) bright junk
    • r: s005,038 undersampled, messy edge; s003,031,032,033,037,045,051,053, and more ghosts; s014,034,074 (057 less) bright junk; s021,022 strong scattered light
    • g: s045 poor cell print through and ghosts; s013,034,037,047,054,057(less),064,073,074(bad),s084 bright junk; ; s003,004,017,038,050,068,071,077 undersampled, messy edge; s051,055 strong, s024,042,066,067,072 smeared, 021, ghosts; s021,022 scattered light;

Refstack Summary

Refstacks run through the staticsky (single filter mode so basic psphot with deteff measurements) and skycal stage on the unconvolved stacks to make the map plots (full 5 filter version still having occasional faults to work through):

  • label: MD07.refstack.20130102, MD07.refstack.20130102
  • data_group: MD07.refstack.20130102.1x20130108, MD07.refstack.20130102.1x20130108.cal20130108
